I did some further diagnostics. Started the mower and let it run for 30 minutes. No problem. Sat on the seat with the mower running at full power, no problem. I thought the safety switch on the seat might have gone bad. I shorted the seat switch wire and the mower ran fine for 20 minutes. Engaged the PTO with the mower sitting still and ran it for 20 minutes with no problem. Decided to try and mow. Engaged the PTO, the throttle was at full power, and pressed the drive pedal. I went about 30 feet and the engine started to stall as before. Parked the mower and let it cool down for about an hour. Started it up again and ran it for 30 minutes with no problem. Pressed the drive pedal (no PTO engaged) and drove about 30 feet and the loss of power situation began. So it appears that the drive mechanism or linkage is the culprit. Where do I look for the problem?
